Venue: Stadio Olimpico Di Torino

 

Losing to Roma and the failing to score a single goal is a big blow to Inter Milan. However, the club is determined to turn the tides into their favor when they meet Torino—and their biggest weapon is no other than their opponents’ aggressiveness.

 

Team Form

 

Torino

Torino’s aggressiveness went a little bit overboard when they encountered Sampdoria. The match that could have ended in their favor, ended in a frustrating penalty with a 2-2 score.

 

Torino’s late rally witnessed the Ciro Immobile’s equalizer during the 66th. Several minutes after, Alesso Cerci converted a penalty to steal the lead from Sampdoria during the 76th. Unfortunately, Torino’s seemingly unstoppable run resulted in a reckless foul, which sent Éder into the penalty, which he successfully converted.

 

The draw was the 3rd for Torino. It could have been their 3rd win, but to no avail. So far, out of its last 7 matches, the club has lost and won twice.

 

 

Inter Milan

A devastating loss to Roma prevented Inter from climbing Serie A’s top spot. With a final score of 3-0 in Roma’s favor, Walter Mazzarri and his men are determined to regain their winning form.

 

Although the Nerazrurri took more shots and dominated possession, these were not enough to snatch a victory. Their main issue is readily attributed to their poor conversion that made the shots taken, plain useless. Avoiding such fatal error plays an important role when they meet Torino, which like them, also aspires for a higher Serie A rank.

 

To note, out of Inter’s last 7 matches, the club has already won 4 times and drew twice. The loss against Roma was their first defeat in the season.

 

 

Football betting tip: Torino 0-2 Inter Milan

Torino’s high degree of energy in the pitch transformed their aggressiveness into carelessness. Should they continue to practice such playing style, they face a high possibility of being thrashed by a more calculated and precise Inter Milan.

 

Inter Milan already has the upper hand since they have a better form. Torino has a chance, but it is a bit slim. However, just like what happened to Sampdoria, the club can pull off a draw.
